York Avenue Garage. Anyone got any pics or more info?
#1
Hi guys,

I have been doing some research on the history of my car:

Basically, after speaking to the previous owners, it turns out the car was bought at York Avenue Garage in 1983.

Ive seen a thread on here a while ago where people were talking about it and I just wondered if anyone had anymore info or some pics of the actual dealership from back in the day?

The original thread:

It would be great just to see what it looked like or if I could find any more info.

Or even if anyone could just confirm the address of it and maybe the old phone number (if its changed) Id be very grateful as Im looking to get some plates and stickers made up.

Thanks in advance

Alex

Used to be owned by the late Jarrow man Dougie Jackson. He sold the company to the national chain. Loads of cars were sold from there.
